Double delight for Lunev of Azerbaijan

14 May 2017

Azerbaijan's Ruslan Lunev claimed his second gold medal in two days as he managed a fine come-from-behind victory in Sundays's 25-metre rapid fire pistol final at the Islamic Solidarity Games in Baku.

The home shooter, who took gold in the 25-metre centre-fire pistol event on Saturday, beat Said Al Hashmi in a shoot off and then came from behind in the final round to overtake Turkey's Murat Kilic.

Oman's Hashmi had a perfect series with five hits to earn bronze in what was his first international final.
